The Shopify Point of Sale (POS) system is available for merchants in the United Kingdom to use.
There are a number of features available to all merchants, regardless of their Shopify plan, with some features being restricted by device. The basic features allow merchants to create orders and accept payments through the Shopify POS system.
The Tap, Chip & Swipe Reader offered in the hardware store integrates with Shopify Payments, meaning you can use the gateway to process both online and in-person sales simultaneously. You can also use an external reader to process payments via a third-party gateway.
Merchants on the Shopify plan or higher will be able to access all Shopify for retail features. These additional features include the ability to print customized receipts, create POS-only staff accounts, use register shifts, integrate with supported hardware, and sell and accept gift cards. Shopify offers a UK-specific hardware store where merchants can purchase card readers, cash drawers, receipt printers, and more.
